Peak Trump?

There are signs that some time this week–maybe over the weekend? –we reached Peak Trump.

That doesn’t mean momentum won’t carry him to a lot more delegates, and maybe even enough to scrape a majority, but I think the bloom is off the rose tinted glasses. Not sure if it’s the Trump misogyny, the arrest of Trump’s campaign manager followed by doubling down on the guy’s defense, the really weird panel of foreign policy advisers, the articles about Trump’s dominance games (more), or the resignation and damning open letter of a pro-Trump “super-PAC” PR person, but something gives me that feeling.

Yes, lots of people have said ‘surely the GOP will come to its senses’ at various times over the past 25 years, and mostly they’ve been wrong. And I’m not exactly saying that myself, just that I’m going to guess his popularity has peaked.
